and the debt ceiling debate there is a chance what was going to be a heavy lift with the administration and congress to raise the debt ceiling becomes heavier. a growing lack of trust and the administration will be distracted and more complicated. dennis: even more difficult and stocks hitting all-time highs and the dow up 5 points. right now is almost as if wall street is deciding this distraction and diversion could be a good thing but gridlock is good for only so long. >> the old line that gridlock is good for stocks i don't quite agree with that. if you look back at history like people think it does. one reason the market has been going up is japan looks better, the european situation is stabilized, the u.s. debt ceiling situation has been pushed off, the budget looking little better. spending is down and the g s es fannie and freddie molded to the government's total budget situation has improved, the actual debt ceiling debate has been put out a couple months the market does not have to confront that. the point i have been making is when it does confront washington is going to beco

and the environment. on the economy, conservatives are chomping at the bit to use the upcoming debt ceiling debate as a weapon to force new spending cuts and tax reform. the problem is, middle class americans may not see how the republican agenda helps them. in february, majority leader eric cantor suggested they have to explain why their plan is everyone, not just protecting the rich. >> for the next two years our house majority will pursue an agenda that is based on a shared vision of creating the conditions of health, prosperity for more americans and their families. >> haven't reflected the efforts to sell their policies as a benefit for the middle class, but others claim it could be done. this is how president reagan introduced his tax legislation before he signed it in 1986. >> the bill i'm signing today is not only a historic overhaul of his tax code and sweeping victory for fairness, but also the best antipoverty bill, the best pro-family measure and the best job creation program ever to come out of the congress of the united states. >> another issue fueling party divisions is climate chan

's first cabinet. the bipartisan agreement to suspend the debt ceiling expires this weekend. but with its latest forecast c.b.o. now says that that limit probably won't be reached until october, november of this year. most news reports suggest this will reduce the political pressure to achieve a bipartisan deal on further reducing the deficit in a balanced way. i would argue the urgency still remains and that this window of time presents us with a perfect opportunity for bipartisan negotiations to resume without the specter of the sword of dam klees -- damocles over our head. i'm amazing our republican friends continue to shun their own party's heritage of making the innovation, they are blind to slashing -- they want to slash government spending with no account for the consequences. it must be done with maintaining strategic federal investment and r&d and innovation and others. i suggest my republican friends look no further than the g.d.p. growth from the last two quarters showing it's not the federal debt but the meat ax approach that's created what drag there is on the economy. the la

into cliffs an debt ceilings, it's far from optimal for the real economy. that said, i think you got a good point this is not a group that will put together coherent budget. they can't come together with regular aura and have a smooth trajectory. >> i'm going to make a forecast here. the gop message with these investigations, whether it's the irs or benghazi or the secret wiretapping of the phone records for the a.p., these are the evils of big government and the evils of government overreach. jared, you will hear this term, government overreach, time and time again. >> i don't disagree. >> the republicans have finally found a message. it may not be the greatest. this is what they will use. >> jimmy made point a minute ago, the reason this scandal is so depressing to people like me is i fully do believe, you probably agree, we need a good, strong functional accountable honest government. and when things like this happen. >> even though it's smaller. >> we can argue. >> i'd be much happier. >> we're not going to agree. we're going to disagree on the size, we do agree on all of those -- >> we

has got to stop. and stop with the debt ceiling that will probably come up for a vote this fall. which way will we go, mr. speaker? what will we do to ensure that the children of tomorrow don't have to pay for the bills of today? it will take courage. it will take, frankly, mr. speaker, more than this congress. we can't wait for washington to do this alone. we need the help of the people. and that's why i take to the floor tonight, ultimately, mr. speaker. getting the word out. know american families, once they know the truths, they will speak that truth to power and they will demand change and demand to live within their means again because that's what every american has done before. want the next to be better off. that's what americans today want, too. and i tell this to you, mr. speaker, and all the members of this house, that when there is a direct conflict between the people in the here and now and the people of tomorrow, those without a voice, those that don't exist yet that's why they don't have a voice, when there is that direct conflict in terms of a vote on an issue, on a bil
